Photo taken in ‘Las Mellizas, Estereo Hondo’, Dominican Republic. I was assisting a very passionate Marine Biologist in collecting coral fragments to transplant for his coral nursery. I tugged the blue marble under the wrist in my wet-suit. This site was so beautiful – unlike any other reef I had visited in the D.R. My mom always said the ocean was my first love, so there I was, in bliss.
